This has to be one of my favourite games that we play at work. It is founded is rock hard science – quantum physics actually – sounds ridiculously ‘woo-woo’ but really works.
The background to it is based on something called The Law of Attraction. There is an abundance of information on The Law and there was also a hugely successful film – The Secret – made about it. It deals with the energetics of atoms and the concept that like attracts like and opposites repel one another.
I was going to give you a few links here to check out but a simple Google search for ‘the law of attraction’ gives you loads of good stuff from Oprah, Wiki (of course), The Secret and some other websites and videos all focussed on The Law of Attraction.
This is well researched and backed with hard science. It’s also backed by a huge and growing number of ordinary people who just can’t ignore the impact.
One of the best examples is the work of Masaru Emoto who studied the formation of water crystals at holy sights around the globe and compared them to water crystals taken from some of the worst parts of our world (Hiroshima & Chernobyl are the 2 that I can remember off hand).
But you don’t need a microscope and water crystals to check it out – you just need a car park and a good mood.
First the essential part, you MUST be in a happy, positive mood for this to work.
You can’t fake it, you can’t turn it on as you’re driving into the car park, and it has to be real.
This is how it works
When you’re driving into a car park that’s usually full and that you usually struggle to get a space in, you need to visualise and tell yourself out loud that you are gong to get a parking space – no problem. Don’t doubt for a second that it’s going to happen. See yourself driving into it, even go so far as to pick the exact spot that you want.
It will happen. You may have to drive round once, twice at the most but it will happen.
Don’t be surprised if someone even pulls out of the exact spot you want just as you’re getting to it.
Go on, try it.
Then once it’s worked for you try it again when you’re in bad mood. You’ve got no chance, you can drive round there all day and it won’t happen.
Remember you cannot cheat this. The car park positivity test is a truly independent measure of the mood you are putting out to the rest of the world.
Think about that for a second, who do you want to be? How do you want others to see you? What impression do you want to give off?
The car park will tell you exactly what you’re giving off.
But the really good news here is that you, and only you, are in control. You can change it whenever you like. It’s not always easy to stay there but you can always have a go.
And when you do, awesome parking spaces will not be the only thing that you start to get more of.
Go on, have a go and let us know how you get on. I can’t wait to hear form you.
